Ariadne's Ambivalence (A poem contributed by Folio)

shadow By Halley Furlong-Mitchell,


I warned you: I would snore. You could have just rolled me over in the night.

No need for abandonment.


Now I am haunted by Meadowlands, gray Subarus, black hair––


A god has come. I am to be his wife.

He knows nothing of half-lives or untangling.


I fuck him

but I still feel the imprint of your palm on my back.

Tell me: is it just the rain outside or did I hear you

breathe there just now, my old shadow––
